Cruella is an origin story of the infamous Disney villain Cruella De Vil (Emma Stone), set in the early 1980s with a punk vibe.
Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry costar as Horace and Jasper, respectively, Cruella’s evil minions. The two are obsessed with capturing the puppies.
Disney’s 1961 animated film 101 Dalmatians is one of the Top 10 grossing movies of all time, adjusted for inflation (and for ticket sales).
The film was remade in 1996 with Glenn Close starring as the evil Miss De Vil. A sequel from that movie was spawned, 102 Dalmatians, which was released in 2000.
Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) directs this origin story. Although, since the original 101 Dalmatians takes place in 1950s London, it is hard to grasp how this is an origin story.
